“Bad guys” and the actors who played them (20 Photos)


  • JJJ

    I love De Niro…but he really looks the same in each photo!

    • shouldbeworking

      Perhaps because he is playing the same dirtbag gangster type cast.

      • r@f

        jared leto as mark chapman was a good one.

    most of these are really good but #12 is the best. love that movie!!

    • pufffdragon

      #12 Why didn't OJ Simpson get this part. They look like brothers… no pun intended.

      • Meowmix

        Because O.J. would've actually killed the people on the set, instead of acting it out

    • dave

      if not for that damn coat…

    • DrDreIsSpelledWrong

      Are you saying that American Gangster was better than any of the other movies listed? you are insane!!!

  • Katie

    #8 #14 #17 Those criminals must have been thrilled that they were being portrayed as good-looking.

    • Guest

      You think scar faced Ray Liotta is good looking?!??

      • Seldi84

        Better looking than the guy he was playing. Yeah.

    #1 Who the fuck is James Bulger? I know a Whitey Bulger, his old apartment and bar are around the corner from my apartment in Southie.

    • sithney


      • joe shabadoo

        he was being sarcastic. nobody in boston refers to him as james. Even the news stations call him "whitey." /facepalm

        • http://freshdub.tumblr.com KCO617

          Thank you for seeing my humor.

      • Epitomizer

        Make it a double.

    • Anonymous

      James Joseph "Whitey" Bulger, Jr.

    • kmac

      Wiki has him listed as Francis "Frank" Costello. James Bulger is a murdered child in England.

      • Stephen

        The departed took artistic license with a lot of things like names. But the character was based on Whitey.

  • BigHeadEd

    Not a bad "guy", but I always though Charlize Theron's portrayal of Aileen Wuornos was spot on.

    • Sade

      Agreed! o_o

    #1 – actually played a fictionalized version of Bulger. Character name was Frank Costello.

    • http://twitter.com/JJrrake @JJrrake

      No duh dude half those guys' name are changed

  • Justin

    Don't forget Depp as Dillinger.

    • Gzee

      I think it would be best if we did.

  • beecee

    The Departed is actually based on an Asian mafia syndicate, though it was filmed in Boston so everybody assumed it was Whitey Bulger who Nicholson played.

    • AngryHoneyBadger

      It's actually based on the Hong Kong crime trilogy called Infernal Affairs.

      • http://twitter.com/JJrrake @JJrrake

        Actualllyyy ur condescending comment didnt disprove anything beecee said

  • chris h

    #17 the actual bad guy looks like he's doing his best De Niro impression. lol
